While Dead Perezidents is no world-beater, this is a team that could potentially reach the playoffs if some things go their way. Picking ninth overall, Dead Perezidents is projected to land in sixth place in NE Fantasy 2016 League with a record of 6-7-0 (2,153 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Drew Brees (49th overall), RB Ezekiel Elliott (9th), WR Mike Evans (12th), and TE Greg Olsen (32nd) within the first five rounds. They also have one of the highest-scoring groups of RBs in the league, as they added Elliott, LeSean McCoy and DeMarco Murray to their roster.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Dead Perezidents has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the hardest schedules. Corresponding with the second-most grueling overall schedule, Dead Perezidents also has the league's second-toughest first four games and second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Bottom line: Fantasy Football is like the real game. You can draft the greatest talent in the world but you still need to manage your team every week to get the most out of that talent.
